The Tour of Britain kicks off this Sunday, September 7th, in Liverpool City Centre before a Stage Two finish in Llandudno on Monday.
And the big day for Wales is on Tuesday when the 112-mile Stage Three climaxes with a lung-busting finish on one of the toughest climbs in the UK – the Tumble near Abergavenny.
But you don’t need the thighs of Wiggo to enjoy the same stunning Welsh riding as ace athletes competing at the top of their game.
On a Drover Holidays self-guided cycling break you can ride the entire Stage Three route at an altogether gentler pace – over a day or even two – and instead of battling to hold your line in the peloton, the most you’ll have to worry about is where to make your next cake stop.
The route starts in Newtown, Powys, heads south to the Black Mountains and onwards to Monmouth before ending with the Category 2 climb up the Tumble. The two-day itinerary will split the route to include an overnight stop in the world-famous book town of Hay-on-Wye.
One day, two night tours cost £245 per person.
A two day, three night package is £345.
Prices include quality B&B accommodation, choice of a hire bike from our fleet of quality road bikes – including Genesis, Neil Pryde and Merida – detailed route description and map, pick-up and drop-off from the nearest train or bus station at the start and end of your tour.
And Drover are offering a 10% discount off new bookings for the duration of the Tour of Britain 2014, September 7th-14th.
We’ll be out in force next Tuesday, cheering on the teams as they race through Talgarth. Stop by our stand beside the roundabout and check out some top road bikes from the likes of Neil Pryde and Genesis!
